What is Application Modernization?
Application modernization is the process of refactoring, reengineering, and repurposing legacy applications, to meet the enterprise needs in a modern business and technology landscape. There are three distinct aspects to application modernization:
Technology Modernization is upgrading various elements of the software stack including programming languages, IDEs, libraries, databases, and OS. This could be either with latest versions within the same technology stack or could be replacing with more modern, robust stacks.
Architectural Modernization is the process of redesigning and re-architecting legacy, monolithic applications into flexible, distributed, and modular applications using modern architectural paradigms.
Deployment Modernization is the process of transforming how software applications are developed, deployed, and supported. Depending upon the specific context of legacy applications, it could vary from web-enabling to complete cloud transformation and delivering SaaS.
